  1. This is a classic example of an amperage draw. Something is either on or shorted. ( make sure your glove box is completely shut(little light in there can drain a battery)

    You will need to trace your wiring to locate any possible short. If you have added any after market electronic device(ex. Stereo, Alarm, remote Start) Start there first.
